And it begins....

Mirabelle Hope Brady was born on September 3, 2013 at 12:58am.  She weighed 8lb 9 oz at birth and was 20 inches long.  She was born at our local hospital, 100% natural with no medication, and we had the assistance of a wonderful doula throughout the labor process.  Labor lasted 10 hours, and my wonderful husband and amazing doula were the best birth team I could have ever imagined.  At delivery, I was surrounded by a group of wonderful women - my midwife, nurses, etc.  It was exactly the birth I hoped for, and the end result was a beautiful and healthy baby girl.

Our hospital stay was lengthened one day due to a bit of jaundice, but Mira received a clean bill of health from the pediatrician the Monday following release from the hospital.  Less than three days at home, and my baby girl was already back at birth weight + four ounces.  She is amazing, and her Dad and I are totally in love with her.

More updates later, but I thought I would let blog land know she is here!!
